It is possible that the John McLeod born in Forgue is the father of Alexander McLeod.

However he shows up as a coachman in every census, and Alexander's father said he was a blacksmith.

I think you still need to follow up the one who was in Ladysbridge Hospital in 1881 and find out whether he was a blacksmith. If he was, then he is more likely to be your John McLeod than the one born in Forgue.

By all means use FamilySearch for pointers. But do not trust anything you find online unless it is an image of an original records. Even then, be wary.

I do use the FamilySearch Family Tree for a couple of reasons -- first, it is the most widely-used free site, and many people trust it, therefor I try to make the sourcing and information for my family members the best possible.

Second, if you use the tree, their hints are now good enough and other tools powerful enough to easily add links between sources and family members when appropriate. As Anne says, just because a person is named in some document /record and it's the same name as your person of interest -- does not mean that the two are linked! 

It's alway necessary to analyze the person of interest's life, *and* what is in the record, to see if they are connected. Fortunately, if you mistakenly (or someone else mistakenly) attached records to the wrong person, they can be *un*-attached. And if there are multiple profiles for the same person, they can (with care) be merged. Thank you for doing that work. It makes the tree better for everyone.

That said, the documents and other records in FamilySearch do not need to be attached to anyone in a tree on FamilySearch. They can be downloaded to your own machine and used in your own private tree, and IMO should be! Images and information can also be uploaded to WikiTree, Ancestry.com, MyHeritage, GeneaNet, Geni, etc and linked up to trees there. 

Don't forget the 80% of record images that are not indexed! They are trying to make it easier to find what you need, but there will need to be some work done on your part to find those wills, deeds, arrest records, probate files, etc. We no longer need to go to Family History Centers or libraries and crank microfilm. We can do it in our bunny slippers right in our own homes.

Anne:  Thanks for continuing to try to help me.  I did learn how to use the Scotland's People cite, paid a fee and purchased a couple censuses.  I tried for several hours to get the marriage of Rebeccia Ross and David Winchester you mentioned on 13, June 1862 in Forres.  I tried and tried and tried... and nothing.  Finally went to a 2871 census for David Winchester and found he was married to someone else and had a family.  I also spent a quite a bit of effort in the Ladybridge Hospital, but could never find a place where I could ask a question.  Honestly, my brain seems to have stopped functioning and my ignorance is disgusting!!!  Let me know if you can find that marriage....and also let me know how I should get in contact with Ladybridge hospital.  Thanks!  Claude

Wise to not add people or data to your tree until verified. 

My advice about Scotland's People: search the sites you have access to, such as https://FamilySearch.org first. Often you can get dates and places at least which will make your searches of https://scotlandspeople.gov.uk/ more efficient.

Step one for me is always creating a detailed timeline for the Person of Interest, including citations. I find FamilySearch invaluable if only for the excellent citations that are usually ready-to-use with no editing needed. Hope this helps,

DNA evidence.  I’m still leaning more and more about how to interpret DNA evidence however in this case X DNA and YDNA lines maybe helpful for you.  There’s a lot of very helpful webinars on Legacy that help with sorting out and interrupting the DNA evidence.

The John McLeod, coachman, married to Helen and living in Alves in 1901 gives his birthplace as Forgue, Aberdeenshire, not Dyke, Moray (FMP transcription).

In 1881 he was in Nairn, birthplace again Forgue, occupation coachman (LDS CD-ROM transcription)

Did you look at the 1890 marriage or 1929 death certificate to check who his parents were? Because I have just done so, and according to the marriage certificate the parents of this John McLeod were JAMES McLEOD and ANN McDONALD. Not Donald McLeod and Rebecca Ross.

I don't know where you got that tree from (Ancestry?) but it's just plain wrong.

Well done!
The tree was just a possible, I  advised Claude to check the 1929 death cert for John McLeod's actual parents, and you have now ruled this John out as being born in Dyke but he could still well be the father of Alex Ross/Mcleod b 1879 and we thanks to your efforts we now know his parents.

Re: Looking for Duncan Campbell...

Lynne Roberts
 

Trust me - I have - I am a great believer in researching every aspect of their lives - relatives and friends etc etc - to the extent of spending over a week in Delaware and Licking Counties pouring over court and local records - visiting cemeteries (the one in Radnor is really lovely) - and pursuing every lead I could find.  The full extent of my research is on my website in the Norwood files at http://www.lynnesgenealogy.com.

I would research other relatives if I knew who they were and where they were from.  I suspect that if there had been relatives who arrived before them, they would have been in Pennsylvania and I have never been able to identify where they settled on arrival.  They were in PA for about 10 years - long enough for three children to be born - before they moved on to Licking County, OH where there are good records.  I have always thought that their settling in Pennsylvania was the best and the most inconclusive information I picked up about them - has never paid off for me.  But I keep looking.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.  Have been to Radnor and through their court house and genealogy society - helpful but not for origins.  He just wasn't talking

Lynne

When you have found all you can about a person or family, then it's time to investigate their FAN club. What's that? Family, Associates, and Neighbors. I'm sure we've all heard (and usually
 ignored)the advice to always read the 3 pages before your family in the census, and the 3 pages after. Well, that's one way to start -- look at the earliest records you have, and who the family,
 associates and neighbors are. Move forward through time, and notice who shows up. Who are the witnesses? Pallbearers? What families did the children marry into? 

Begin with doing thorough research of any siblings or other close relatives who may have preceded them to Pennsylvania and then Ohio? Or accompanied them, and came later to join them?
 Have you checked old newspapers for social stories about the family? People usually came to a new place for a reason, and very often traveled with locals if not family.

For a bit more about this tactic, see https://lisalouisecooke.com/2016/10/29/genealogy-fan-club/ among many others. 

Hope this helps,

Re: Looking for Duncan Campbell...

Lynne Roberts
 

This information is clearly a mishmash of information - some accurate and some not and much completely unrelated - someone has combined a lot of various Campbells and assumed that they are related and they are not.  The information about Duncan's burial is relevant but doesn't match other data that I have documented.  On Scotland's People I found many baptism records that were close but none were spot on.  And I should note that Duncan was not Anglican or Presbyterian - he was Methodist.

However, I will spend some time going over this material - it looks familiar - think I've "been there before" - but it's worth a second look.  Thanks

Re: Looking for Duncan Campbell...

Lynne Roberts
 

Sorry - should have made it clearer - Toothaker, Rankin and Wise are the girls married names - none of the family had middle names.  That didn't start until the next generation - my great grandmother was Emma Maline Campbell - daughter of son Peter who is my 2nd great grandfather.  And don't think I don't know how common the name Duncan is - when I talked to Durie and gave him the name, he laughed out loud and told me to forget it.  As you can see, I didn't take his advice.

I'm happy to keep on looking - but there's no place to look that I can find - that's the reason I'm sharing this with you all.  As I just said - experienced researchers Durie and Dobson told me to forget it - that there wasn't anything to find pre-1800.  I'm just not willing to throw in the towel.

Re: 40 years looking for parents of John McLeod, b. 1854 or 1855 in Dyke, Elginshire

Anne Burgess
 

Unfortunately facts are chiels that winna ding.

The John McLeod, coachman, married to Helen and living in Alves in 1901 gives his birthplace as Forgue, Aberdeenshire, not Dyke, Moray (FMP transcription). In 1891 John, occupation coachman, Helen and daughter Sarah were living in Elgin, and he gave his birthplace as Forgue (FMP). In 1881 he was in Nairn, birthplace again Forgue, occupation coachman (LDS CD-ROM transcription)

Did you look at the 1890 marriage or 1929 death certificate to check who his parents were? Because I have just done so, and according to the marriage certificate the parents of this John McLeod were JAMES McLEOD and ANN McDONALD. Not Donald McLeod and Rebecca Ross.

I don't know where you got that tree from (Ancestry?) but it's just plain wrong.

When you have found all you can about a person or family, then it's time to investigate their FAN club. What's that? Family, Associates, and Neighbors. I'm sure we've all heard (and usually
 ignored)the advice to always read the 3 pages before your family in the census, and the 3 pages after. Well, that's one way to start -- look at the earliest records you have, and who the family,
 associates and neighbors are. Move forward through time, and notice who shows up. Who are the witnesses? Pallbearers? What families did the children marry into? 

Begin with doing thorough research of any siblings or other close relatives who may have preceded them to Pennsylvania and then Ohio? Or accompanied them, and came later to join them?
 Have you checked old newspapers for social stories about the family? People usually came to a new place for a reason, and very often traveled with locals if not family.

For a bit more about this tactic, see https://lisalouisecooke.com/2016/10/29/genealogy-fan-club/ among many others. 

Hope this helps,

Valorie

You give their children..are the 2nd names you give MARRIED names, or in fact a second name of the child?  IF in fact, they are 2nd names you should also check out them.  For example......Rankin to me, would indicate someone’s grandmother’s maiden name.  Also the spellings.....the way you have spelled Christina..CHRISTIANA....never saw that spelling before.....try ‘messing’ with spellings and see what comes up.  DUNCAN may be shortened to Dunc.......Look for a marriage between Dunc and Christ** using wild cards.....but don’t give up on it.  Duncan Campbell is like looking for Joe Smith in New York city..how many do you think there were?  dig deep.....and Good luck......Goldie
